Spirits
Release Date: 6/16/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (A15) $15.98 

Born in Nigeria, raised in London, and now living in Brooklyn, saxophonist Zem Audu possesses a deep well of influences to draw from for his debut recording. Inviting you to feel the atmosphere of the city streets, the blazing sunshine of the Caribbean, and the soulfulness of Nigerian culture, the visceral impact of his experiences with a wide-range of musical greatness - Jason Moran, Mike Stern, Hugh Masekela, and his international tours with the legendary Skatalites - is wildly evident on Spirits. Recorded at Avatar Studios in New York with guitarist Mike Stern, pianist Benito Gonzales, Ben Williams on bass and John Davis on drums, Audu's eleven original compositions crackle with ingenuity, spirit, and groove as they celebrate the life experiences that inspired them. •"Zem Audu showed off a terse, purposeful sensibility, a smokily nuanced tone and compositional fluency, ranging from Monty Alexander-style Jamdown jazz, to colorful postbop, funk and more." - New York Music Daily

In A Dancing Mood
Release Date: 5/19/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (A20) $20.98 

The Les Brown Band did not have the success of the bands Such as Goodman, Shaw, James, Miller and The Dorsey Brothers in the late thirties and early forties, but over the years Les built a band that had a good clean crisp sound, with good soloists and a tight muted brass sound that identifies it as the Les Brown Band. He only has to start to play his theme Leapfrog and you know at once who you are listening to. As is usual with a Les Brown band he features a strong lineup of musicians with amongst others Dave Pell, Rollie Bundock, Don Fagerquist, Butch Stone, Stumpy Brown and Jack Sperling. Also featured is a powerful lineup of vocalists including Lucy Ann Polk, Jo Ann Greer, The Modernaires, The Ames Brothers and Jud Conlon’s Rhythmaires. I think that time will say of Les Brown And His Band Of Renown that they were one of the Big Band greats.

(2-CD set) Herman’s bands were always characterized by their rhythmic drive and intensity and by the enthusiasm of the players. In Herman’s autobiography, jazz critic Gene Lees is quoted as saying that “Woody had an astonishing capacity to spot talent before it was particularly obvious to anybody else... the list of careers that he either made or advanced is staggering.” Herman’s personnel lineup over the years reads like an index to jazz, including such notables as sax players Stan Getz, Zoot Sims, and Flip Phillips; trumpeters Shorty Rogers, Pete and Conte Candoli, and Sonny Berman; trombonists Bill Watrous, Jim Pugh, and Bill Harris; pianists Ralph Burns and Jimmy Rowles. This double CD features a “live” concert and gives the listener over one hundred and thirty five minutes of solid jazz performed by one of the best in the business.

"Manu Armata" saw the daylights in February of 2013 and was instantly well received by the international press. It got raving reviews and Komatsu's music style was compared to bands like Queens of the Stone Age, Torche, Mastodon, Monster Magnet and Karma to Burn. Over the past five years they have steadily grown and were asked to be the support act for internationally well-known bands like Truckfighters (SWE), Lonely Kamel (NO) and a range of bands from the USA such as Monster Magnet, Karma to Burn, The Sword, Red Fang, Clutch, Nashville Pussy, High on Fire, Corrosion of Conformity and Baroness.

He comes in many forms and many incarnations, but his style is distinctly his own. Just as there's no mistaking his smooth lyrical delivery and searing hip-hop prose with its underlying edgy beats, there's no denying the incredible force that is Kool Keith. Whether as a founding member of the legendary Ultramagnetic MCs, or in the guises of his renegade rap personas Dr. Octagon and Dr. Dooom, Keith has established himself as an innovative lyricist whose erudite raps push the envelope to the limit. When Keith teams up with KutMasta Kurt on the production - they arguably create the best albums in his catalog!

Harmony Heaven

Format: CD
List Price: (A20) $20.98 

Clarence Johnstone and Turner Layton teamed up in 1924 and first appeared in London in an Elsie Janis revue, they were booked to appear in a cabaret before going home, and this time caught the ear and eye of a recording executive who signed them up to a contract, written out on the back of a menu card then and there, and for over eleven years they made records of all the best popular songs of what has since become known as the Golden Age of the Dance Bands (and by this, the Golden Age of the Popular Songs). Turner Layton was already quite well-known in New York as the composer of such very popular standards as After You’ve Gone, Dear Old South Land, Strut Miss Lizzie and Way Down Yonder In New Orleans. After the partnership broke up in November, 1935, he continued as a solo act, recording regularly until 1948. Johnstone returned to New York, and died in obscurity there after eking out an existence as a bell-boy in a hotel; Layton stayed in London until his death, well into his eighties, in February I978. The twenty numbers on this disc were made between the end of 1925, at the outset of electric recording (although the singers’ first records together were made by the old acoustic method of singing into a long metal horn) and the late summer of 1933. It offers a cross section of the kind of songs that were popular then, in all the various styles, from the extrovert Stein Song that swept the country in the summer of 1930 to the tenderness of Ramona, which did likewise just two years earlier.

List Price: (A17) $17.98 

After many years of navigating the tempestuous waters of free-improvised music, Simon Nabatov drops anew the anchor in the bay of written material, tunes, predetermined dramaturgy and gestures &emdash; leaving plenty of room for suspense and surprise. His new trio is a purely Cologne based venture and includes two of the brightest talents of its current scene &emdash; the bassist Stefan Schönegg and the drummer Dominik Mahnig (who already appears on a couple of Leo Records releases). Every piece of this album tells a unique story, often choosing a specific route and vernacular to get to the core of the story unfolding. Nebulous collective fluctuations get pierced by brutal invasions of well hidden Brazilian origins; a soulful groove disintegrates into a microtonally sliding dirge; a sunny song, seemingly maimed for good in the process, receives a glorious resurrection with a touch of Africa thrown in &emdash; all of it, and much more, makes up the musical journey with the Simon Nabatov Trio.

Patti Page, the blond singer with a voice as smooth as gossamer, may have been small in stature, but as regards the popularity of her records, stood head and shoulders above her contemporaries. She was the best-selling female artist of the nineteen-fifties and in a career spanning over sixty years, she sold over one hundred million records. Her first entry into the American Popular Music Charts came on June 26th 1948, Patti’s version of “Confess” was more popular than that of the combined talents of Doris Day and Buddy Clark. Patti became famous for her over-dubbing. For example, she sang a duet with herself on “Mockin’ Bird Hill”, a trio with herself on “Mister And Mississippi” and a quartet with herself on “And So To Sleep,Again”, all big hits. On this CD you will find extracts from five of her albums, twenty-seven golden examples of her stylish alto voice.

Neil Tesser writes: "Perelman has made more contributions to saxophone technique than perhaps any other reed player since Roscoe Mitchell: he has mastered the tenor sax's altissimo range and found innovative ways to navigate it from within, as well as to access it from the other ranges of the horn. ... He has researched air flow and breath control, rebuilt embouchure and streamlined the demands of creating the extraordinary sounds at his disposal."

After 15 years of performing together, the rapport between the legendary Portland guitarist John Stowell, and Seattlites, bassist Jeff Johnson and drummer John Bishop, has reached such a level of intimacy and connectedness, they transcend the traditional concept of a "guitar trio." Whether performing their intriguing originals or the thoughtful reimaginings of less-done classics, each piece is a ticket to somewhere unique, like a travelogue of where the trio members have been and where they would like to go. Documented on five albums for Origin Records, their music continually inspires comments from reviewers bordering on the poetic: "Whispers of intelligent messages." Jazz Weekly, "...images of chilly mists rolling into town off the cold Puget Sound, filmy tendrils drifting up dark, shadowy streets." All About Jazz, "Fertile is the band's mind and talent for a sound ethereal." All About Jazz. •"...plush and understated blanket of sound...a seamless sonic poem that grows with each listen." - ALL ABOUT JAZZ

Moments Captured
Release Date: 5/19/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (B18) $18.98 

Moments Captured is trumpeter Alex Sipiagin's third Criss Cross date to feature a three-horn lineup, after Equilibrium in 2004 and Destinations Unknown in 2011. While the earlier discs featured David Binney on alto, here it is the fiery Will Vinson displaying his prodigious talents alongside the leader and master tenorist Chris Potter. Rounding out the lineup on this exploratory all-original session are the players from Sipiagin's 2015 album Balance 35/58: John Escreet on piano and keyboards, Matt Brewer on bass, and Eric Harland on drums. The intricate, polyphonic aspect of Sipiagin's writing continues to flower and grow, but it is Escreet's extensive use of the Prophet 6 synthesizer that marks this album's biggest departure. Wringing a seemingly limitless array of tonal colors from the instrument, Escreet gives Sipiagin's music a refreshing and wholly unpredictable edge.

Souls That Save
Release Date: 5/19/2017
Format: LP
List Price: (B28) $28.98 

LA death rock originators Super Heroines may not be a household name now, but they were on the cutting edge of a variety of different scenes in the early 1980s. Band leader Eva O was simultaneously a member of Christian Death starting with their legendary debut, Only Theatre Of Pain, and worked with husband Rozz Williams in his later group, Shadow Project, until his untimely demise by his own hand in 1998. Meanwhile bassist Jill Emery went on to play with such divergent groups as Hole and Mazzy Star, and drummer Steven Darrow played in pre-Guns N' Roses group Hollywood Rose with Axl Rose and Izzy Stradlin. All of this is to show that the band had a huge mark of the LA scene, not to imply they are just a footnote. Their second album, Souls That Save, came out in 1983 and would be their last record for nearly 10 years. Produced by Kaleidoscope's Chris Darrow, whose son was the drummer, the album picked up right where Cry For Help left off, with more classic '80s LA death rock. Reissued in a numbered limited edition press with printed innersleeve for Record Store Day 2017.

If you thought we were getting close to the end of the Brown Acid series with our last Trip, you were dead wrong... we're only just getting rolling. The well of privately released hard rock, heavy psych, and proto-metal 45s is deep and we are nowhere near tapped out. Most of these records were barely released and never properly distributed so they ain't easy to find, but they're out there if you're willing to dig and we aren't afraid to get our hands dirty. Hard calluses have formed from handling the shovel and we've sifted through a lot of dirt, but we've dug up another ten tremendous records to share with all the heavy heads out there. This volume brings together eight insanely rare and skull-crushingly heavy 45s as well as two previously unreleased bangers.

The follow-up to saxophonist Carlos Vega's high-spirited 2016 release, "Bird's Ticket," brings him back to Chicago from his Tallahassee home to reconnect with the same group of Chicago's finest - Victor Garcia on trumpet, Stu Mindeman on piano, Josh Ramos on bass, and drummer Xavier Breaker - for a set of ten wide-ranging originals. Entrenched in Miami's Latin music scene in the early 2000s, the eclectic and electric musical experiences from that period helped form his unique approach that carried through later work with Arturo Sandoval, Ira Sullivan, & Tito Puente, and informs his composing and performing aesthetic now. Carlos is currently on the faculty of Florida A&M University and is a member of the Chicago Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble and trumpet legend Doc Severinsen's Big Band. •"Saxophonist Carlos Vega's band crackles...crafty arrangements, spirited group interplay, and ear-grabbing freshness and spontaneity in their soloing." - ALL ABOUT JAZZ
